    Hey folks,

    Just got off the phone with my internet company and noticed some odd behaviour from my iPhone 6 when using a wired (BlackBerry brand) headset.

    The first 2 times I called, apparently my phone wasn't sending any audio/tones whatsoever but I could hear the other end just fine. The third time, it worked perfectly fine UNTIL I hung up the phone call.

    Went to send a message in WhatsApp, and the phone kept freezing/lagging during text input (and randomly in the general UI) until I unplugged the headset.

    I've been using these BlackBerry wired headsets (I bought a bunch in bulk) for several years over several phones, including an iPhone 4 years ago, and never had this issue. Has anyone else had this issue with BB/other wired headsets on their iPhone 6/any other iPhone, and any idea on a solution other than changing to an Apple-branded/certified one?

    (Edit: I should note, yes, I have verified that the 3.5mm plug is completely inserted and not sitting loose etc.)

    I have no idea why that would be interfering with the function of your device. I have a few non-Apple headphones that I've inserted into the earphone slot and yet, I cannot replicate the problem on my iPhone 5.

    Have you tested with a different type of headset, or the Apple EarPods that came with the phone?
